This book, together with its companion volume Theory of Engine Manifold Design – Wave Action Methods for IC Engines  aims to report upon the significant developments that have occurred over the last twenty years and show how mature the calculation of one-dimensional flow has become. In particular the volumes show how many of the limitations of the Method of Characteristics can be removed by the application of finite volume techniques, resulting in more accurate simulations and giving the further benefit of more rapid and more robust calculations.


  • Summary of equations for compressible flow in pipes and at the boundaries
  • Measuring the characteristics of valves and turbochargers
  • Design of engine gas flow systems
  • Case studies of flow in engines
  • Noise generation in engines, and silencing techniques
  • Future developments.

Design Techniques for Engine Manifolds is aimed at practising engineers and students, who wish to get a good understanding of how wave action in the inlet and exhaust manifolds of reciprocating engines affects the performance of the engine. A variety of numerical techniques are presented in some depth, yet the material is considered from an engineering perspective and the use of specialised mathematical notation has been kept to a minimum.
